Veritas InfoScale Availability 8.0 for UNIX Linux: Administration Training Course
The Veritas Infoscale Availability 8.0 for Unix Linux: Administration Training course discusses how to use InfoScale Availability to manage applications and databases in high availability environments and Cloud environments. The course is designed to enable you to gain the necessary fundamental and advanced skills that are required to manage a highly available application in a cluster. It also discusses how to deploy InfoScale Availability in the lab environment to practically implement a sample cluster design and deployment.
Training Course Objectives:
After completing this course, you will be able to:
- Provide an overview of the InfoScale product suite and InfoScale support for cloud environments.
- Create a cluster, and configure service groups and resources.
- Outline the different VCS cluster communication mechanisms.
- Explain InfoScale support for multi-version clusters.
- Perform common administrative cluster operations.
- Summarize VCS user and agent account passwords encryption standards.
- Outline online and offline configuration procedures.
- Configure notifications and triggers to customize VCS behavior in response to events.
- Explain how VCS responds to resources faults.
- Describe how the Intelligent Monitoring Framework improves fault detection.
- Describe VCS response to common system and cluster interconnect failures.
- Illustrate how I/O Fencing protects data in common cluster scenarios.
- Manage applications and databases in a VCS environment.
- Explain InfoScale support for containers and Kubernetes.
- Summarize the architecture of VMware vSphere HA.
